Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE Sound Card

-Great sound good quality-Easy to install, easy to use-Drivers function -Incompatible with front panel connectors on Antec 1200 (and almost certainly most other situations)-I don't know if this is merely an issue with my card, or my setup, or what but whenever my pc boots up the audio (in the Sound Blaster Audigy control panel) defaults fiveǛ.1 speakers. This is nuisance since I use a headset. Most of my games default to this as effectively, but it's not that massive of a deal because you can just alter it and you're fantastic to go. I in no way had great luck with onboard audio, so with my new create I instinctively went with a sound card. I've utilized this card in three separate computers now, and the five.1 default concern is new. It could be Vista, could be a 64-bit OS, or it could be my precise create.

The only "pro" that I can claim with this card is the installation was smooth and the cost was minimal. This card was place in my recording Computer mainly because my onboard line in was starting to distort my recordings. I had often had good luck recording with the older SB live, Awe cards so i figured this newer version should be just as satisfactory. It was not. This card is definitely terrible when recording from "line-in" or multitracking. It sounds as if the card is attempting to "process" the input signal when you multitrack and it was causing the existing tracks to skip and move out of sync. Rendering the newly designed wave file useless. I am not new to recording with the Computer, I disabled all effects and EAX. Nevertheless had problems. I RMA'd the card back to newegg and bought a Reside for ŭ off of e bay and I am back to tracking. Technologies really should improve the recording approach, not hinder it. I know I must be searching at a much better recording setup. I will be acquiring a full blown setup 񡹲LT) in the close to future, but this was suppose to just "get me by" till then. Needless to say, it didn't. If you are not recording with the mic/line-in, then this card would in all probability do ok for you. If you are searching to do recording at all....I recommend you remain away from it. I will never ever use one more Soundblaster item again because I am very aggrevated with the waste of time/money this card has brought on me....

Sound excellent is substantially improved more than onboard sound. mp3's sound considerably superior. This is a steal for ฮ if you are making use of onboard. I guess it doesn't operate with XP SP3. Only cause I gave it 4 stars. I purchased this exact card from an additional retailer and it does come with Vista drivers. In fact it says on the cover "Works with Windows Vista." So if Newegg's does not come with Vista drivers I'm positive you can download them at the Inventive site.

Review Date: 05/24/13
none Message at Creative assistance .Windows Vista is presently not supported. Had bought a card in 2008 and did not use. Installed it yesterday in a Dell Vista computer system. It plainly states on the box "Works with Vista". Properly it will not update. It is Blaster Audigy SE Model SB0570 PCI slot (it is not a express card). I nevertheless see it for for sale on numerous web-sites. So maintain in thoughts it looks like Dead card walking.

Cheap, decent card. For 30 bucks you cant complain and all that, inexpensive to replace which im undertaking tho this will be the final a single i acquire. Just strapped for money. As opposed to another evaluation and upon performing every thing humanly achievable....... My line in jack stoped functioning from being employed to substantially..... also for some explanation you dont use the pink ( mic jack ) to use your microphone it goes into the Line In jack very weird.

Review Date: 05/04/13
Stuck this factor in my old Dell Dimension 8200 to replace the dying on-board sound chip. Connectors and every little thing match like a glove and I no longer have that annoying ground-loop problem I was having. Only a minor con; just right now I had to reset the input so I could listen to the Line-In. Hopefully it won't be a recurring difficulty. If I ever do give this personal computer to an individual else, at least they will be in a position to use the analog/digital features of this card.

Review Date: 04/28/13
Wonderful Audio, for a Good price tag. Died 54 days soon after buy...Hopefully Newegg or Creative can resolve this. Otherwise its a good card I loved the card when it worked... But tonight it began emitting nothing at all but static. I attempted the obvious troubleshooting (different speakers, unique jacks, various PCI slot) Even tested a distinct sound card in the slot, and tested this card in a diverse machine and I get the exact same outcomes... It makes me quite sad that this excellent card could die so quickly...

Sound output is sufficient I have Windows XP SP three and I never ever found the appropriate drivers to make this device work. I went by means of the driver CD, the solution web page, and even did some investigation of my personal on Google. I was never able to uncover the whole suite of drivers to make this device perform appropriately. If all you're searching for is just sound, then this is the device for you. If you're searching to use the mic with ventrilo or teamspeak, you're in for a enormous disappointment. I would NOT advise this device for XP users.

Review Date: 04/18/13
Low-cost I kept finding low-level conflicts that triggered lockups and crashes. Sound excellent not any far better than onboard audio (although this may possibly be connected to the driver problems).

Review Date: 04/16/13
it performs great..haven't failed me yet =) none great sound card the bass is good...

Review Date: 04/07/13
No complaints. An effortless set up and computer software load. none almost certainly need to have just upgraded the mother board to one that incorporated an onboard sound'card'.

Review Date: 04/06/13
I believed it was the similar as the card as years ago for XP this card is is noisyin my Vista machine and will not let you record streaming audio. Creative employed to be creative

Review Date: 04/05/13
I just updated to 1.4.9 or a thing like that and they gave some windows 7 help. Now you have all those great choices, such as EAX, and 24bit audio with 96KHz sampling. All added benefits of a sound card. Crisp audio with no hissing or ugly noises. CMSS-3D sounds seriously fantastic, so much superior than that matrix mode on my speakers!Seriously affordable! I had it for two months with prior drivers working with windows 7 and the card was horribly disappointing. Just update your drivers!

The sound on this sound card is by far the best i've ever heard, also a large step up from my Aopen Cobra AW840 Sound Blaster (which i nonetheless have). Works well with SRS Audio Sandbox. The application I do use sometime. Other people have complaints, but I have practically nothing to say about it. Hey a sound card is a sound card. As lengthy if it works and also performs nicely with SRS Audio Sandbox with no problem. I am content with it. Demands to have an HD Front Audio Port on it Sony MDR-XD100+Bass Enhance from Application+SRS Audio Sandbox= Taking complete benefit of my headphones

Way better sound high quality than my on board audio. Makes my games sound way superior. Well worth the price. Terrible driver support from Inventive but can't complain its an old card. I DIDN'T GET A Creative STICKER!!! Do they even do that? It would be nice. Worked with SBA_PCDRV_LB_1_04_0061 drivers with windows xp. I don't know about the windows 7 drivers. Ill be testing these later.

Review Date: 03/07/13
A lot much less distortion than the onboard audio of my Dell XPS. Didn't know how to disable the motherboard's audio, so it took awhile to get up and operating.

Review Date: 03/04/13
Wow, super difference in sound high quality more than the onboard MoBo sound.Nice price tagEasy setup on pc operating Vista none

Review Date: 02/23/13
Very good cost when on sale with reabate The sound card will perform with Windows 7, but only in a standard mode. You can not use any of the apps that come with it, so, can\'t setup speakers or do other more advaned things. I will need to have to by an additional card for my Windows 7 system. I attempted the drivers from Inventive, and from Microsoft. All had the exact same challenges. The card will finish up back in an XP Pro program. Reading all the forums, appears that there is no true solution.

Sounds great!!Uncomplicated to install.Its a excellent deal for only 34.99! None

Review Date: 02/14/13
Worked flawlessly for five+ years! Nevertheless works perfectly fine in Windows XP 32-Bit only. With the recent driver update for this card in Windows Update from November 2009 weighing in at 33 MB's. This card is officially botched for Vistaǝ ࿀ & 64 Bit). New driver adds assistance for CMSS 3D & other whistles but crashes your computer with a variety of random errors. "Rollback driver" DOES NOT function if you place in this new driver. You can\'t search for the old driver dated Could 2009 weighing in at 25 kb only!! on Windows Update or Creative. The old driver was a fundamental driver but it worked. You can download fundamental driver from Creative's web site dated Jul 2007 but it will set up but give you BSOD after 1 or 2 hours. You really should appear for "DanielK" drivers they weigh in at 787kb they work flawlessly in Win7 64-Bit but it's "unsigned" Chuck that as nicely. If you have onboard audio off Realtek ALC899A You don't want this. That onboard is vastly superior to this garbage. I have it in my Gigabyte motherboard it even has a optical out on the motherboard itself! SNR for Realtek is 106 db this issue is only 100db. Realtek sounds crisper & clearer at peak volume as effectively. Granted this card is "a bit louder at peak volume" but I don't listen to anything a lot more than 75% volume. I adore my ears you know Besides if you want crisp audio at far more than 75% volume you must invest in a decent AMP & a great card from "Audiotrak" not this garbage.Do your self a favor & check your onboard audio's specs or appear at an additional brand.Wait for inventive to come up with new card all their X-Fi points are garbage they can't even write proper drivers for it & in turn sue the pants off men and women who can eg. "DanielK".This card is a rebrand off - Sound Blaster Live! 24-Bit, X-Fi Xtreme Audio, Audigy Value, Audigy LS & Audigy SE. All these card have the exact same specs!
